Experience Required



Relevant education and/or experience in the field of engineering is required. Most companies prefer that interns to be at least a rising junior and the minimum time commitment is 2-3 months to ensure that they are properly integrated into the position. We are very proud to offer internships and volunteer projects with some of the best companies and NGOs in the Cape. These positions are intended for mature and responsible participants who can keep to a schedule and commit themselves to the position. Further, our group housing is fairly independent: ELIers purchase their own groceries, commute to and from their work sites without supervision, and pay rent monthly.
